The course content is very good. The Instructor has explained very nicely the concepts related to investments. Before studying this course I was not knowing what is Margin Trading. But this course has given me a good idea about Margin trading. The course is really useful for the people who are interested in investment in stock market.

Good informative course. But quite difficult for an absolute beginner as the course is professional and the tests are little outside the content which is provided.
